1001 Executive Digest.Commentary 3

Happy New Year. It’s hard to believe that another year has passed, and another decade. I’ve heard many say they’re glad 2009 and the past decade are behind them. I’ve even seen articles that say the past decade was the worst in history. For some, maybe that’s true, but I find it hard to believe that we just lived through a time that was worse than the Crusades that began early in the 11th century and continued for decades, the great plagues that struck Europe in 1600s, or in more recent history, the Civil War, World Wars I and II or even the 1960s.

Rather than focus on the worst of the past, I prefer to focus on the promise of the future. We all will face challenges and obstacles on personal and professional levels, and we likely will experience triumphs, as will our industry.

At PennWell, we thought that a new decade would be a great time to launch a new conference to help utility executives overcome their challenges. The Electric Light & Power Executive Conference will take place March 21 and 22 in Tampa, Fla. Consider this letter your personal invitation to the event.

The Electric Light & Power Executive Conference is a joint project of DistribuTECH Conference & Exhibition, the industry’s leading transmission and distribution conference and trade show for 20 years, and Electric Light & Power, the most recognized utility executive magazine for more than 80 years.

We know your time is valuable, so we have created a two-day conference that:

  1. Establishes an exclusive, intimate atmosphere in which industry leaders can network and freely discuss challenges and opportunities;
  2. Caters to utility executives tasked with helping utilities and their customers move toward and adapt to a sustainable energy future; and
  3. Provides access to exceptional and otherwise inaccessible speakers.
You may view the full conference details on the Web site. Upon review, you’ll see that the Electric Light & Power Executive Conference promises strong sessions, exciting speakers and informative social networking opportunities. Topics to be addressed include smart grid development, financing, nonconventional power source integration and business strategies for a sustainable energy future.

I hope you’ll join us at the Electric Light & Power Executive Conference. Attendance is deliberately limited, so don’t wait to register. What’s more, the executive conference immediately precedes DistribuTECH, March 23-25, so you can extend your stay and learning and networking opportunities through the week.

I hope to see you there.
